- Hi guys, I have a chocolate cheesecake here and the crust is chocolate, the filling is chocolate, and the whipped cream, so if you're a chocolate lover, let me show you how to make this. So the first thing I'm gonna do is get started on the simple syrup, and I'm gonna pour in some sugar and water, and this is for the cheesecake filling. I like to make simple syrup, that way I know that the sugar is gonna bake really evenly into the chocolate filling. Okay, and now my simple syrup is just about ready, and you could tell because the sugar is nice and dissolved into the water. And, I'm gonna remove it from the heat and let it cool. And for this triple chocolate cheesecake crust, I use a mixture of chocolate Rice Krispies, Oreos, chocolate syrup, and then last but not least, some butter. And, I'm gonna pulse it, but I still want to see pieces of the Oreo in the crust. And I've lined a springform pan with some parchment paper. It's kind of like an instant brownie crust. So just make sure to get the crust all around the edges of this pan. Beautiful. So I'm gonna set this aside. For the chocolate cheesecake filling, I use raw whole cashews, and I soaked these cashews overnight, that way they're nice and creamy. Tofu, it works just like an egg would. Chocolate syrup, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and flour. Now that all my ingredients are together for the filling, I'm gonna pulse it in this food processor. So now that most of it's pretty much blended, I'm gonna add the simple syrup. Once you stop seeing so many white flecks, then you know that the cashews are nice and blended. So now I'm gonna pour my cheesecake filling into the crust, perfect. So now I'm gonna bake this chocolate cheesecake at 375 degrees for about 45 to 50 minutes. So now that my cheesecake has cooled, I'm gonna make the chocolate whipped cream topping. So I'm using a coconut cream for this whipped cream, and this bowl has been chilled in the freezer for about 10 minutes, that way when I'm whipping the coconut cream, it stays thick. So, that's the first step I'm gonna do. I'm just gonna lightly cream. So I'm mixing the coconut cream for about 30 seconds just so it breaks down, that way when I add the cocoa powder and powdered sugar, it's not clumpy. So I'm gonna take my cocoa powder, a little bit of vanilla extract, and my powdered sugar, and now I'm gonna blend all of these three things into the coconut cream. Yay, that looks beautiful. So now I'm gonna frost the top of this cheesecake with my chocolate whipped cream. I like that this whipped cream is more like a milk chocolate, it's not like a super dark chocolate, so it won't be too chocolatey. I can hear the crust breaking. Don't know why, it's such a nice sound, it's very calming. Alright, that should do it. Wow. Look at that. Sometimes when you feel like you've had a shortage of chocolate, you just have to make yourself a triple chocolate cheesecake. Mm. It's kind of like you're just eating a giant hug.
